Aegaleos

Aegaleos (Aighaleos, Herod. viii. 90; to Aighaleon oros, Thuc. ii. 19: Skarmanga), a range of mountains in Attica, lying between the plains of Athens and Eleusis, from which Xerxes witnessed the battle of Salamis. (Herod.) It ended in a promontory, called Amphiale (Amphlhale), opposite Salamis, from which it was distant only two stadia according to Strabo. The southern part of this range near the coast was called Corydalus or Corydallus (Kornodalhos, Korndallhos) from a demus of this name (Strab.), and another part, through which there is a pass from the plain of Athens into that of Eleusis, was named Poecilum (Polkhilon, Paus. i. 37. ยง 7.) (Leake, Demi of Attica, p. 2, seq.)
